Regret is something we all experience. Here are some of my greatest hits:

I shouldn’t have said that.

Why did I do that?

Do the Hard Thing

As part of his farewell discourse to the disciples, Jesus begins to tell them they can know the Father because they know Jesus and the work that he has done on earth. Then he seems to make this outrageous claim that the disciples can not only do the work that he does, but will actually be able to do even greater things than what he did! How is that possible?!

Acts 15:36-40

And after some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Come, let us return and visit the brethren in every city where we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are.” And Barnabas wanted to take with them John called Mark. But Paul thought best not to take with them one who had withdrawn from them in Pamphylia, and had not gone with them to the work. And there arose a sharp contention, so that they separated from each other; Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus, but Paul chose Silas and departed, being commended by the brethren to the grace of the Lord.

Psalm 119:33-40

Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes;
and I will keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, that I may keep thy law
and observe it with my whole heart.
Lead me in the path of thy commandments,
for I delight in it.
Incline my heart to thy testimonies,
and not to gain!
Turn my eyes from looking at vanities;
and give me life in thy ways.
Confirm to thy servant thy promise,
which is for those who fear thee.
Turn away the reproach which I dread;
for thy ordinances are good.
Behold, I long for thy precepts;
in thy righteousness give me life! – Psalm 119: 33-40

Parting the Red Sea

How hard it was for the Israelites to step away from what they knew! Even though they were slaves, beaten and worked unto death, it was still all the people had known; 430 years to the day the Israelites were in Egypt. They witnessed God’s mighty power when the cloud and pillar led them to the Red Sea; they were terrified at the prospect of dying at the hands of the Egyptians. They watched as Moses parted the Red Sea, and the cloud and pillar stood between them and the Egyptians to allow 600,000 men, women and children to cross between two walls of water.

Making a Difference

You may think “What difference can I make only working a day and a half?” My answer is “a huge difference!” Not only a physical, work type difference but also an emotional, humanitarian difference. Just having so many strangers showing up willing to help in any way they can, shows the people of Houston that we love them and that God loves them. Recently, I had the honor of helping lead a mission team to Houston. We were there to assist in the clean-up of the neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Harvey. The amount of work our group of six accomplished in a day and a half is truly amazing.
